Are there really no more discoveries in human anatomy? In this episode, I'll review some recent discoveries: the rise of the fabella, macrophage barriers, the interstitium, button and zipper junctions, lymph node micro-organs, new vessels in bones, and tubarial salivary glands. 00:00 | Introduction 00:41 | Is Anatomy Finished? 03:44 | Sponsored by AAA 04:16 | Rise of the Fabella 11:52 | Sponsored by HAPI 12:38 | Macrophage Barriers 23:18 | Sponsored by HAPS 23:55 | Interstitium 27:48 | Button and Zipper Junctions 35:28 | Lymphatic Micro-Organ 40:05 | Free Update Newsletter 41:05 | New Vessels...

Krista Rompolski joins us for another Journal Club episode—bringing us a study about how students change answers on their tests. Is it better for a student to change their multiple choice response or to avoid doing that? The answer may surprise you!

Can we create a course that ensures a student is proficient in all concept groups and not just in some? Where everyone who passes is at a B+ level of proficiency (or better)? In this episode, host Kevin Patton describes his experiment with what he calls proficiency grading. And we have new and appropriately controversial selection for The A&P Professor Book Club: The One World School House by Salman Khan. 00:00 | Introduction 00:56 | Book Club: The One World School House 13:30 | Sponsored by AAA 14:20 | Does Averaging Grades Measure Proficiency? 21:35| Sponsored by HAPI 22:20 | Importance...

Can you believe it? Even more questions about my wacky testing scheme are answered in this episode—this time regarding stats demonstrating effectiveness of these strategies. I also talk about gray hair turning brown, naturally, why we do NOT want our students to master A&P concepts, and why we want to become the hippocampus.

Have you ever really considered the actual meaning that word "normal" in the context of teaching anatomy and physiology? Is it even meaningful at all? We explore that in the context of human body temperature in Episode 101. And I give some practical tips as we continue our conversation about my open, online, randomized testing scheme. 0:00:00 | Introduction 0:00:47 | What Does Normal Mean? 0:08:32 | Sponsored by AAA 0:10:01 | What is Normal Body Temperature? 0:27:21| Sponsored by HAPI 0:29:13 | In Our Last Episode... 0:32:20 | Sponsored by HAPS 0:33:35 | Practical Tips on Testing 0:52:39 |...

Students often ignore published learning objectives, but we often use subtle clues to help them understand what they need to know. In this episode, Kevin Patton discusses how to be less subtle about that, while also teaching our students how to spot important clues. That elephant in the room? It's the textbook. Cilia are amazing and vital. In COVID-19, we see how cilia damage can kill us. Did you know that cells make soap?
